"I believe that for elected leaders like myself who oppose abortion, it's not enough to say what we're against; we must say what we are for. That is why I came together with my pro-choice colleague Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut to introduce the Preventing Unintended Pregnancies, Reducing the Need for Abortion, and Supporting Parents Act, which offers common-ground policy solutions to reduce abortions by addressing the root causes."
Marisha Agana (R) is anti-choice.
